TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California man has been convicted of killing a New Jersey businessman who laughed at him when pastrami fell out of his sandwich at a doughnut shop.
The prosecutor says 26-year-old Ronald Eugene Murray II, of Gardena, punched and kicked 56-year-old Mun Jang while they were eating in the Donut King in October 2011.
Murray had taken a bite out of his pastrami sandwich and some of the meat fell out. Jang laughed and Murray became enraged and attacked him.
The Daily Breeze in Torrance reports a jury on Monday found Murray guilty of voluntary manslaughter. He was found not guilty of second-degree murder, which could have led to 15 years to life in prison.
Murray now faces up to 11 years when he's sentenced on March 4.
